GIO PONTI (h. 5, Tale of the Cat - Chipeta Springs by Alydar) has drawn post 4 for the $10 million 2010 Dubai World Cup. Connections are pleased with the draw and happy with preparations leading up to the "Big Night."
Christophe Clement's Assistant Trainer, Christophe Lorieul has been with GIO PONTI in Dubai this week. Time has been spent acclimating GIO PONTI to the Meydan Racecourse sights and sounds as well as insuring that the horse is settling in well. Lorieul confidently assures the press, "He is looking better and better. So far, so good. He's improving every day and getting back to his normal self."
GIO PONTI will probably battle out favoritism at the windows with GITANO HERNANDO, TWICE OVER, and VISION d'ETAT. The Dubai World Cup is set to go off on Saturday, March 27th at 1:45 EST on HRTV.
